WWE legend Paul Heyman recently sang the praises of Roman Reigns, comparing him to stars like Brock Lesnar and Stone Cold Steve Austin.
While Heyman has previously worked closely with Austin and Lesnar, the legendary manager is currently aligned with The Tribal Chief. Under the veteran promoter’s tutelage, Reigns has held the Universal Championship for over 750 days.
Following a recent press conference involving Roman Reigns, Matt Kempke shared footage of Paul Heyman touting the many attributes of the undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
“Make no mistake about it, ok. Brock Lesnar one of the best, Stone Cold Steve Austin, one of the best, everyone I’ve ever worked with, one of the best. Roman Reigns is the greatest champion , performer, fighter, wrestler, sports entertainer I’ve ever met in my entire career, he’s the undisputed greatest of all time,” Heyman said. (From 0:03 to 0:30)
Roman Reigns and Heyman’s presence at the press conference was to promote the tribal leader’s upcoming title defense, which will see the champion face off against Logan Paul at Crown Jewel 2022.
Roman Reigns Says Brock Lesnar Is His Biggest WWE Rival
The tribal leader has been the face of the company for half a decade after his iconic main roster debut in 2012. Although he had iconic feuds against legends like John Cena, Randy Orton and The Undertaker, he is one name that stands above the rest as its biggest rival.
Speaking on the impulsive podcast, Roman Reigns hailed Brock Lesnar as his biggest opponent in WWE.
“Me and Brock, we put on a bunch of huge shows together. I mean, we covered pretty much the whole calendar year, to sprinkle it in. Big pay-per-views, WrestleMania main event, so I would definitely say he’s been my biggest rival so far,” Reigns said. (H/T sportskeeda)
After their last showdown at SummerSlam, Lesnar walked away from the company, with fans eager to see when he returns. Meanwhile, Reigns continued to build on his impressive run as the undisputed Universal Champion.
